[QUOTE] Yessssssssssssssss! It's amaaaaaaazing :) My strategy is alienate all the nations simultaneously, while simultaneously losing about 3-4 rookies a mission. At least, that's the path it seems like I'm going down. What difficulty are you playing on? I'm on Classic (non-Ironman), and so far it's actually going OK. I did lose Australia though. :( [/QUOTE] Sounds like a classic strat for Classic mode. It's rough out there! I'm on Classic Ironman at the moment. I had been losing too many soldiers the first month, but I'm now through the second month with only six casualties and three soldeirs have made lieutenant. I've had some lucky breaks... I was shitting bricks trying to capture an Outsider (I had to kill him the first time when my soldier with the arc stunner got a face full of hot plasma) but I caught that Pokemon with 49% odds on the next try and avoided losing any of my A-team (one squaddie K.I.A. but not the worst case scenario). What did you pick for home base continent bonus? My first game gave me the idea to prioritize satellite coverage above all else, so I offered to help Nigerian princes access their bank accounts for the 30% Africa cash bonus. Seems to be working out, I have five satellites after two months and net income of 534 space bucks. Which seems pretty amazing to me compared to my last game. The downside is that I only now was able to build the officer school and up my squad size. Losing two dudes when you have only four total and twice that many aliens can be pretty burly. Still, the future looks promising (funds-wise at least)... although I expect horrifying tragedy is just around the corner. Also, I have a sniper in my current game named after my Mass Effect character. Cross-series RP! I may be a little bit too into this game. Edit: Sup Badoor. I played normal on PC for work, playing on PS3 for fun. Some people may bitch about sub-optimal PC controls, but it works well on any platform IMO.
